            When the select few are sitting in the nuclear bunkers the
dominant species on the planet will be nematodes. I've just started a
project for my Zoologist colleagues studying these wee devils and I'm
convinced they are the mega-organism. Formaldehyde, not a problem, couple of
weeks later, give them a rinse and away they swim. Osmium tetroxide, "are
they trying to annoy me with this slightly noxious compound." Managing to
fix them is hard enough but processing for sectioning, a nightmare. Does
anyone have experience processing these beasts? Hints and tips would be very
